The United Nations has expressed deep concern about the future of women in Afghanistan as there have been no instructions for girls to go to school. Although secondary schools have been opened in the country since Saturday, there have been no instructions for girls to go to school.
UNICEF says “it is important for girls of all ages to have the opportunity to resume their education without delay”.
Another proof that the Taliban has not moved away from extremism about women is the renaming of the Ministry of Women.
According to the BBC, the Taliban want to close the Ministry of Women’s Affairs in Afghanistan. Attempts are being made to change this ministry into a ministry of ethics.
The nameplate of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs has been removed and replaced with the nameplate of the Ministry of Ethics.
The Taliban took control of the capital Kabul on August 15. A month has passed since then. The country’s economy has collapsed amid political turmoil, and there has been a food crisis. The new Taliban government is trying to turn the wheel of the economy and bring ordinary people back to normal life. In the meantime, the Taliban government announced the reopening of closed educational institutions.
During the interval, a small number of schools have started activities. In some schools, girls are reported to be going to classes up to sixth grade. In addition, women have been seen attending classes in universities. However, the girls’ high schools have not been opened yet.
Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Filippo Grandi said on Friday that there was room for dialogue with the Taliban and opportunities to participate in human rights issues, including with women.
Grandi called on the international community to stay with the Taliban to save Afghanistan from disaster and the region from instability.
